      • I put the car up on the QuickJack 5000, removed the wheels (cause it's easy now with the 5000), changed the oil, oil filter, greased the ball joints, the rack, the front driveshaft U joint (will have to remove the shaft to grease the rear U joint), and adjusted the rear brake shoes. I took out the driver's seat so I could more comfortably access the dash gauges. I removed the fuel gauge to return to Morris for adjustment to sweep fully to read full consistently. Then I just laid under there on the creeper to take in the view; something I would have never done when using jack stands.

        Then I pulled the 1983 Fuji Del Ray down from the ceiling hangers, inflated the tires, cleaned and lubed the chain and went for a quick shakedown ride. Nice day.

                  • Made a set of tunnel (kidney) panels that had been missing from the car when I got it, and added a dual USB charging outlet in the passenger panel. It was fairly easy to make a reasonable pattern with cardboard, and I had the materials already around the garage, so the biggest expense was a fresh can of spray adhesive.

                          Correct. fuse block will be in the passenger foot-well area and all wiring harness will go up/down the passenger side with hidden main harness in engine bay.

                      • Last weekend I made new tunnel (kidney) panels from materials I had around the garage, and installed a dual port USB charger in the passenger panel. Today finally fixed the zipper for the rear window by soldering on a new mount for the zipper pull handle that had broken off at some point earlier. Also used a little furniture wax to lube up the zipper, now I can actually use the top without the rear window.

                        • Replaced the diaphragm on my driver side seat, the 2 rear mounts tore off when I stupidly kneeled on it. That diaphragm was from John Skinner, the replacement is from TRF, with a bit thinner rubber but seemingly stronger mount points.

                          The Roadster Factory piece seemed almost too easy to install, so I decided to flip the old one and double
                          up. The seat feels more firm, and I feel like I sit higher, which isn’t necessarily good (I’m tall), but now I know it would be easy to change again if needed.
